Greene is scheduled to lead a protest rally over Trump’s impeachment Tuesday at noon with the New York Young Republicans, a group linked to white nationalists. His office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Adams, along with New York Police Department Commissioner Keechant Sewell, said he expects some disruption but isn’t worried about violence. There have been no «specific credible threats» made at this time, he said.
The Democratic mayor had a message for would-be «mobsters» like Greene.
«Control yourselves,» he said. «New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger.»
“As always, we will not allow any kind of violence,” Adams said.
He urged New Yorkers to use public transportation ahead of potential gridlock and some road closures, including outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.
Despite Trump’s calls for «potential death and destruction» amid the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into hush money payments, no significant protests have materialized in recent weeks.
A 39-year-old Trump supporter with no criminal record was charged last week with threats and harassment after allegedly brandishing a knife at a family with two children outside a courthouse. She pleaded not guilty.
